At 9:00 a.m., our friend Susan met us at Travelers World RV Park where we started our walk. First stop, Mission San Jose to sign in for the walk.
We walked along the San Antonio River, seeing many birds along the route, including a flock of black-bellied whistling ducks.

Other birds we saw along the way...
|Red-shouldered hawk from back|
|Great blue heron.|
We also saw Mission San Jose, ruins of the old Hot Wells Hotel and Mission Concepcion on Mission Walk 1. When we started the walk it was foggy and cold. About 2/3rds of the way through the walk, the sun came out. At that point we were back by the RV park. I changed out of my sweatshirt into a T-shirt and Susan M. did the same. Much more comfortable. We finished the walk in less than three hours in sunny, warm weather.
Back at the 5er, I ate lunch, took a shower, then at 2:00 p.m., Lydia from our RV park met me for an afternoon outing to Mitchell Lake Wetlands Audubon Center. We also picked up Steve and Margaret at their RV. Off we went to see what we could see.
The admission to Mitchell Lake Wetlands jumped from $2 to $5. Wow! Luckily, I joined so I did not have to pay. Lydia is former military so she got in for $2.
We drove to the Duck Pond where we saw:

Later, Bob and I went to dinner at Sam's Burger Joint where we chowed down turkey burgers. He had regular fries and I had sweet potato fries.
Tonight we are watching "The Beatles: The Night that Changed America - A Grammy Salute." Excellent! Bob and I remarked it makes us feel young again.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are singing. Travel Bug out.
